TOKYO, May 14, 2020 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu Limited announced today that it has concluded an agreement for an absorption-type merger with FUJITSU DESIGN LIMITED (FDL) which is a consolidated subsidiary of Fujitsu.

As part of this initiative, Fujitsu will absorb and merge with FDL, which provides comprehensive design services, including product design and communication design.

Through this merger, coordination between each business organization in Fujitsu and the design resources of FDL will be strengthened to enable designers to become involved in the upstream consulting phase and speed up the internal permeation of design thinking, whereby the Fujitsu Group will be able to further reinforce design-driven management, and the ability to make proposals in the DX business as well.
